Maryland Heights

Hey, kids! I just realized that I didn’t share my hiking adventure from a few weeks ago with you.

I’m really trying to get myself in shape. I’ve had a rough few months what with winter and some minor health issues, but I’m putting an emphasis on nutrition and vitamins, and I am starting to get back on track.

When I was in college, everybody went to Harper’s Ferry on the weekends, and practically everyone had the same picture of them up on Maryland Heights. I’ve been saying I want to go to Harper’s Ferry for probably two years now, but I just never made the time to go.

Two weekends ago, the Fellow and I managed to have a day off together, and we went. I finally got my picture.

The Fellow’s rolls through everything like a tank pace is much brisker than mine, so I could’ve used more of a leisurely pace rather than full speed ahead, but we made it.

The whole thing is one uphill climb, and at one point it’s very rocky. Being an incredibly clumsy sort, I consider myself lucky that I only tripped once or twice and didn’t roll my ankle or roll off the mountain.

We packed a backpack and had a PB&J picnic at the top overlook. I sent my poor mother the last picture and all she said back was, “let me know when you’re safely back on the ground.”

He loves me; he carried the pack.

So much fun and I can’t wait for our next adventure! We’ve got plans for the end of March which I can’t wait to share with you.
